6 It's going to be extended, of course. At the end of this show, the Republicans will be split with most R's agreeing with the totalitarian Democrats and talking shit about the few good R's in Congress. I've seen this tv show a couple of dozen times already.

8 McCain was giving Rand a ration of crap early on. Rand gave a short but passionate speech that, frankly, left me cheering for him. Following, I tweeted, 'There shouldn't be a need for a US Senator to stand on the floor and beg people to consider liberty when legislating.'

Posted by: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse at May 31, 2015 01:45 PM (PMlgt)

60 They've come out and said that most of the provisions of the spying are useless and haven't led to any prosecutions.

Why are we even having this debate?

Who really believes we're safer because of it?

Do you also think the DHS has kept us free from hijacking?

Posted by: Old Hob at May 31, 2015 01:46 PM (NBhge)

64 I'd like to think I understand the reasons why some GOPs are in favor of extending it. But I get stuck on the fact that if there are any abuses of the powers in the act, or crimes committed under the color of the act, the only way we would know about said abuses and crimes is if some whistle blower breaks the law and pulls a Snowden. Some how I don't think that's what he founders had in mind.

Bet that's what's being said behind the scenes to get votes: "Come on, you don't want to be THAT guy who blocks this and then there's a terrorist attack....Just consider the consequences of your vote, because we will be sure to point out your vote to the media when it happens..."

Never mind that it will be one or more of the administration's dumb moves that causes the next, inevitable attack - ignoring intel from Russia, letting a terrorist slip in across our Southern border, pressuring local authorities into not "discriminating" certain sectors of the population, etc.

110 McCain was giving Rand a ration of crap early on. Rand gave a short but passionate speech that, frankly, left me cheering for him. Which is why Rand was mostly right to call out his own party for creating this mess. Sooner or later conservatives will figure out that Rand was also right to call out his own party for supporting "the Syrian opposition", thereby helping to install a caliphate in Raqqa.

a] Burner phones don't matter is he's traveling in the same places regularly (location meta data) and he's calling the same numbers. They can ID him by his behavior pretty quickly.

b] Not about look at Joe Blow, the individual.
It's about what orgs exist (which Joe Blow may be part of), who are the key nodes/people w/in those orgs, and simply disrupting the key members of the group to neuter it. I imagine that's what the IRS audit were about: finding key Tea Party groups that posed a threat to his re-election and neutralizing them.

Renewing for another 4 years an act that vastly expanded government power without meaningful oversight, hastily cobbled together as a series of amendments to existing laws,  passed in the midst of a terrorist attack by a quivering terrified Congress, that will take the law to damned near two decades of the initial act, sounds like a great idea.

184 "...it means that the administration is able to draw a graph (like a network chart) of who is talking to whom. It is able to say what are the key nodes through which any business passes, find all its Internet "friends" and interlocutors and potentially drill down into the comms themselves --- in time series.This would pick up every organization of significance, whatever its purpose....


The fact that you belong to a large group, for example the 50% of the US population that is conservative or Republican, does not give you safety in numbers. Within this large group of millions are a much smaller number of key leadership nodes. They are the nodes that matter, the top of the hierarchy mandated by Dunbar's Number.

If you can control, corrupt or even bait those nodes you can reduce the entire group to impotence. You can effectively decapitate it, a strategy applied not only to al-Qaeda but apparently also by the IRS in its hunt of Tea Party and Republican fundraising groups. The virtual world lets you dominate the virtual high ground. You don't have to clobber all Muslims and Republicans. You just have to clobber the key nodes and the rest will mill around like leaderless ants."

Posted by: Soothsayer at May 31, 2015 07:41 PM (NLm3u)



I didn't read the novel but gave the series a fair try despite the comment from one female officer in the very first episode mentioning her girlfriend or wife.


I gave up shortly after the guy they rescued said they freed the terrorists from Gitmo because all society had gone to hell and surely these prisoners would no longer want to do anyone harm.


I can't wait for ZNation, season 2 to start though. That was a fun series.

232 The thing is, I predicted this immediately after 9/11. Before the Patriot Act, before the TSA, before Afghanistan and Iraq. Practically my first reaction after 9/11 was: Rather than focusing on Muslims, the government will end up treating each and every American citizen as a potential terrorist. Why? Because concentrating on Muslims would be "discrimination". Even in 2001, the PC culture was so far advanced that nothing was worse than discrimination.

234 Watch John McCain? No, don't think so. I'm hooked on those GoPro Syrian tank battles in Jobar. It looks like the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, or the battle for Berlin in '45. I can't figure out the tactics of it though. The tanks go in and expend a metric shit ton of ordnance, and has been for over a year now. The insurgents don't have heavy weapons to counter the armor, which would make it a logistics war, and the only way the insurgents can counter the Syrian government's logistics advantage would be to wage war on economic targets to destroy the economy that supports the army's logistics base. Need some commentary from veterans with urban warfare experience.

Pretty sure at least some of the insurgent groups have been using RPG-29s. I know they had them in Iraq so they should still be floating around. Of course those export model T-72s only have 400-500mm RHA at the front so it doesn't take a lot to kill one. If they can separate the tanks from the infantry screen they have a serious advantage in an urban environment.

Plus, it was easier to work around the G-men. In those days, you just ignored government you didn't like, and they ignored you too, unless you were depriving them of money, or made too much noise.

439 IIRC Ice Pirates came out first, said the guy too lazy to Google. Ice Pirates was after HotW1, but before Spaceballs. Ice Pirates differs in that its parodies were (slightly) more subtle. Spaceballs insisted on its references ("oh god not AGAIN"). On the grasping hand... when mocking that genre, parody arguably *shouldn't* be subtle. I'm going to give the nod to Spaceballs. The plot is easier to follow. All that said, Anjelica Huston was hot as a Wolf-Rayet in the mid 1980s. Especially in leather :^x

AnywAy, he painted his bus with a Wagner house sprayer one weekend. White over bright red. From 100 ft awAy, on a rainy day, at dusk, it was beautiful & shiny. Get within fifty ft of the thing in the daytime and you could see two foot long runs. It looked horrible. But he was proud of his work, so I guess that's what mattered, right?

536 HI! I'm going to rant here and yell at you all.

What is going on here is that people won't let shjt go, and cuddle their butt-hurt to them like a favorite teddy bear in an electrical storm.

Granted, me too.  I am nursing my personal butt-hurt like it is worth good money.

I'm pissed off because security, freedom and economic recovery are simple - not easy mind you - but simplesimplesimplesimplesimple and all people have to do is do the right thing and not try to make sure all the sweet kickbacks and the strokes and cocktail party invites land only in the right pockets.

And I am seeing my country be stolen by traitors who pledge to do everything to save it, and are turning it into a dictatorship while they fight over intangibles and who gets the good settings at the table.

So stop being those asshats and get on with your lives.

Thank you for your patience.

There had been plenty of female singers in rock music, and there were folk musicians like Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell playing acoustic guitars, but Suzi Quatro was pretty much the first woman to be a frontwoman for a rock band playing an electric instrument. She was American, but had her greatest success in England. Her music wasn't all that memorable, but she was a pioneer and influenced subsequent generations of female musicians. She probably belongs in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for that.

If that doesn't happen, it won't be long before any further discussion will be moot and/or punishable by "law".

So since we're now on the gun thread, I can whine that those "Hi Tek" coasted 9mm 124-grain bullets left a definite "wash" of lead in the grooves of my XD.  Online scuttlebutt was that the coasting works real well, almost no leading.  Gonna increase the charge a bit.  Got nearly 500 of them to use, so they'll all be loaded and shot, leading or no. 

 

But I might be back to plan B:  only the more expensive coated/jacketed in the 9mm.  Making the cost advantage (about 40% with regular uncoated lead bullets) of reloading in that caliber fairly small.

634 Wonder how long a round would "coast" if it were fired in space--provided it didn't collide with anything?
Posted by: irongrampa at May 31, 2015 11:00 PM (jeCnD


It is a question of friction.  Per Newton things in motion stay in motion until they are affected by something to change the motion.


Fire it between stars, it would coast until it  got drawn into the orbit of something, or encountered a magnetic field that might change the direction or speed.
Fire it in orbit, it goes into orbit and is subject to gravity, solar wind and possibly solar or planetary magnetic fields.  If it slows down enough it gets sucked into a large body.

I suppose the answer is "probably not forever"

655 Sooo, as a gun thread, I was talking to someone about turning an Italian Carcano action into a 7.62 x 39 rifle. The bolt-head is right and there would only be the issue of switching out the barrel, and re-jiggering the extractor. think it will fly or just be an expensive failure? Posted by: Kindltot at May 31, 2015 11:00 PM (t//F+) Sounds like fun. Special Interest Arms used to do 7.62x39 conversions of Lee-Enfields using the Hungarian singlestack AK mags and a new barrel. Discontinued now, unfortunately. Always wanted one, have a bubba'd No4 with a shot out barrel that would be a great candidate. On the other hand, last I checked, they still do .45 Auto conversions and De Lisle carbine conversions (both with a faux suppressor and NFA).

irrright, got one (a Lewis lead remover kit) for the revolvers, but I actually usually just use an all-copper ChoreBoy pot scrubbing pad, cut up in pieces and wrapped around an old brush of the appropriate caliber.  Works very well.  I might actually soak the XD barrel in some serious solvent - usually just snaking it and a few dry brush passes and it's mirror bright.

 

Kindl, I defer to others on your project idea.  I am at a far lower technical level when it comes to gun projects.  At the moment I have a plan to "re-arsenal" my 5 Mosins, meaning reshellac stocks (where needed), electronic bore-clean the barrels (again), polish the bolts, ensure the magazines feed easily with stripper clips (file out the interrupter if needed, and shim the magazine if needed), and document the proper hold/sight picture for each rifle.

 

irongrampa, I'd think if not acted upon by another force (gravity, etc) a bullet fired in space would in fact continue indefinitely.  Hmmm, question:  does smokeless powder require any oxygen present to burn?  If so then the action of the firearm would have to be not in the vacuum of space.
